Host: Idle Hour Neighbors Alliance

Join a leisurely walk along some of the streams in the Idle Hour Neighborhood. The largest watershed in Lexington, namely West Hickman Creek, has its headwaters here. Our walk will highlight the ways in which urban streams can be a valuable corridor for plants. In fact, their banks should form a broad buffer of diverse plants to prevent erosion. We will focus on the plants that settle in along water: moisture-loving plants that naturally grow there, invasive plants of our urban environment, and native plants that can be added to the mix.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
